Publisher Description

A coming-of-age story about transgender tween Obie, who didn't think being himself would cause such a splash. For fans of Alex Gino's George and Lisa Bunker's Felix Yz. Obie knew his transition would have ripple effects. He has to leave his swim coach, his pool, and his best friends. But it’s time for Obie to find where he truly belongs.   As Obie dives into a new team, though, things are strange. Obie always felt at home in the water, but now he can’t get his old coach out of his head. Even worse are the bullies that wait in the locker room and on the pool deck. Luckily, Obie has family behind him. And maybe some new friends too, including Charlie, his first crush. Obie is ready to prove he can be one of the fastest boys in the water—to his coach, his critics, and his biggest competition: himself. *Includes a downloadable PDF of the Glossary, Resources, and Further Reading from the end of the book

    " I was only able to get through this text because I downloaded it as an audiobook. "Obie..." reads like a stereotypical tumblr post of an unhinged teenage girl who imagines the whole world is against her just because not everybody agrees to participate in her mentally ill interpretation of the world. The language is simplistic - as simplistic as the author, who specializes in revoltingly sweet, yet logically empty Instagram posts (I follow her there so I have a bit of a comparison). The story is a cliche - if you ever read any progressive propaganda, you know it already. In the end I would actually recommend this book though - but only as a study of an individual suffering from gender identity disorders. If you look at the book this way, it might be worth reading. "
